Best homeopathic remedies for Toothache from the book Therapeutic Pointers to Some Common Diseases by E.A. Farrington…

Aranea Diadema [Aran]

      It is indicated in toothache which is esp. worse in damp weather and also when the patient gets into the bed.

Bryonia [Bry]

      It is useful when the toothache is of rheumatic origin and comes from cold. The tooth or teeth show no sign of decay and more than one tooth may be involved. The relief is obtained momentarily by firm pressure of the head against the pillow and by application of cold.

Chamomilla [Cham]

      You may give it when the face is red, when the child cannot bear least pain and is cross and irritable, and when cold water in the mouth relieves for an instant [Coffea-relieves permanently].

Coffea [Coff]

      It is often indicated in toothache of children and of nervous people; it is the remedy when cold water relieves the trouble.

If is the best remedy in toothaches in children from decayed teeth, with relief from the application of cold water.

Ignatia [Ign]

      It is indicated in toothache which is worse between than during eating.

Kreosotum [Kreos]

      It is indicated in subjects of decayed teeth, and cures pains extending from teeth to the left side of the face. The pains are burning, and the patient is excitable, nervous, even, as in children, thrown into convulsions. The teeth decay rapidly, gums bleed, the blood being dark.

Lachesis [Lach]

      It is also indicated in subjects of decayed teeth when the gums are swollen and dark-red and livid, or they are tense and hot and look, as if they would crack, with throbbing pains.

It often follows Mercurius.

Magnesia Carb [Mag-c]

      It is indicated in toothache during pregnancy, when the pains are worse at night and force the patient to get up and walk about [Rat.].

Mercurius [Merc]

      It relieves when the gum is inflamed and tooth decayed, with abscess at the root. The pains are tearing and pulsating and shoot into the face and ears, and markedly worse from the warmth of the bed.

Plantago Major [Plan]

      It is to be thought of when toothache is associated with earache.

Ratanhia [Rat]

      It is indicated in toothache at night, compelling the patient to get up and walk about.

Rhus Tox [Rhus-t]

      In toothache, it may be indicated, when the pains are made worse by cold and relieved by warm applications. But in jumping toothache, the pain is momentarily relieved by the application of a cold hand. The teeth feel loose, as if they were too long and as if asleep. The gums feel sore.
